We are incredibly grateful for all the support Napa Valley has shown over the years for helping us find a cure for Duchenne. The current environment means we need our partnership more than ever for both the boys facing the challenges of Duchenne and the vintners adjusting to vastly reduced hospitality. If you and your friends can’t get to Napa Valley, then what better way to enjoy the wines than in an exclusive virtual tasting curated for friends of CureDuchenne.
